    I'm a leave of absence taking teacher, but I'll give you my own personal example.  

    I know that in the head of my own 3rd grade son, he learns things in process.  So, while we did spend time remembering simple math facts, most of the math facts were learned while doing word problems.  

    I also spend a lot of breath asking questions like, "How did you see that answer?" or, "What process did you use in your head to get that answer?"  

    I think there is value to memorizing things.
